The Doklam standoff began on June 16, when Indian troops stalled China's road construction at the disputed tri-junction of China, Bhutan and India, which would have compromised the security of an arterial corridor linking the northeast with the rest of India.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that Beijing hopes that New Delhi will remember the lessons of latest border confrontation and will avoid such incidents in the future. "This is in the interest of not only Indian and Chinese people, but also meets the aspirations of the global community", Wang said.
As an Asian, it is a great relief to learn that India and China have resolved their border dispute at Doklam (India, China end months-long military face-off in Himalayas; Aug 29).
Asian giants China and India have great potential for cooperation, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday, seeking to cast the neighbors' hard ties in a positive light ahead of a visit next week by India's prime minister.
Now that the Doklam dispute is over (for the time being), here is how the next few days are going to unravel for the three parties involved: India, Bhutan and China. Wu Qian, a senior PLA colonel, in a statement said, "The Chinese military will remain vigilant and firmly defend its national territory and sovereignty following the military stand-off between China and India".
India has maintained that both sides should withdraw simultaneously for any dialogue on the issue, and asserted that war was not a solution. He was answering a question from the Chinese media reports that India withdrew troops to provide a face saver for China after reaching a settlement. However, the Ministry of External Affairs did not respond immediately to the comments of the Chinese Foreign Minister in New Delhi.
Mr. Wang pointed out that both India and Japan are China's neighbours. China claimed that they were constructing the road within their territory and has been demanding immediate pull-out of the Indian troops from the disputed Doklam plateau.
"On the sidelines of the BRICS meeting, Xi will also have meetings with some leaders upon their request". "We hope this contributes to the maintenance of peace and tranquility and status quo along the borders of Bhutan, China and India, in keeping with existing agreements between the respective countries". The first thing is whether the leaders will have the willingness to meet.
